critics consensus

Martin Lawrence lends his comedic touch, but the movie isn't much more than standard action-comedy fare. Read critic reviews

    I don't have a lot of films I hide under the rug, but this film is a guilty pleasure and one of the better Lawrence films. The comedy comes from the central casting and a story that would fold under other actors and comedians. The simplistic storytelling won't add much depth but the film is about fun and in this department it does not fail. The film lacks a real villain and plays out like a criminals dream story. Good fun and passes the time. 17/11/2018.

    Silly film with non sense, it's stupid but funny, don't take this film seriously or you would have a painful experience. It has a clever twist at the very end, it can be enjoyable, notably the car chasing scene.

    A cliched action/comedy hybrid starring Martin Lawrence that while entertaining enough for a lazy afternoon, it doesn't give us anything new or original. Much of the storyline is just so completely unbelievable and brushed over that it just is fluff to advance the cliched narrative along. There really isn't much to recommend here but if you want a brisk 90 minute action comedy film to pass the time, you could do worse.

    Miles Logan: Carlson. I've got something to tell you. I'm not from West Covina. I'm from Internal Affairs.  "He's a cop that's not." Blue Streak is a likable and entertaining action comedy. No I know what you're thinking. How, it has Martin Lawrence in it? I'll be the first to say that the guy makes a lot of shit and that he isn't that funny. But every one in awhile he starred in decent movies, such as Life. Blue Streak is another one of those decent films he starred in. It's funny and Martin Lawrence isn't too ridiculous to where it completely overpowers everything else that is going on.  At the start of Blue Streak, Miles and his fellow robbers are heisting a diamond. When Miles gets backed into a corner with the cops, he decides to hide the diamond and get it once he gets out of prison. So he hides it in a building that isn't done being built yet. Two years later, when he gets out of prison, he goes back to that building, and it is a police station. Now he has to pose as a detective in order to get the diamond back. A lot of what goes on is predictable and unoriginal, but it is all done in a way that makes it feel fresher than it really is. Blue Streak is one of those movies that I've seen many times, and can watch whenever. You don't have to think too much while watching, and it is an enjoyable time. Plus Dave Chapelle is always worth watching and he plays Miles' driver, Tulley, and just happens to be the funniest thing going on in the movie. Even if you don't like Lawrence, don't automatically assume you won't like this. I don't really care for him, but this is a movie I can say I like. I'm not going to lie and say that this movie is anything special, but it is definitely worth a watch.
